Fantasy gives us a chance to stand apart from danger and feel safe and free while experiencing and exploring new worlds. We can participate without actual fear. We can objectively view problems the characters face, from a distance, and help solve them. We can identify with the characters who represent us because they are universal (stand for everyone).
Elements of Fantasy
- Hardships help characters "grow"
- "Search" for an answer; face challenges
- Self-confidence builds heroes
- Free to feel fear, loyalty, humor
- Battle of "good" vs. "evil"
- Sacrifices for victory
- Tests and trials
